Here is the comment at the end of David’s post that somewhat confirms what has been the talk of the town regarding God of War III’s visuals.
Today is a big day for us PS3 guys, or FPS lovers alike. The public beta has officially begun.

I got a chance to get some one on one time with Killzone 2, and this is by far the best game that will hit stores in 2009!

Better video quality after the JUMP!
Get your DVR’s ready. Tonight on G4, during X-Play starting at 8pm, we will have the world television premiere of the brand new Killzone 2 Helghan trailer. Yes we know this was already posted to the web a little early, but who wouldn’t want to see it on a much bigger screen with a better sound system? Seriously, it deserves that kind of attention, because it’s just that cool. So tune in, crank it up and enjoy all the explosive goodness. We think you’ll like it.

They’ll also get some Face Time with the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto and give you part 2 of their All Access look at Prince of Persia. Finally, they will bring you the Broadcast Premiere of the amazing new Killzone 2 trailer.
Today on X-Play:
- Fallout 3 Review
- MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Review
- Face Time: Shigeru Miyamoto
Gamers have already experienced many In Game Advertisements, primarily the product of deals between the publisher and the advertising agency, but this move eclipses all by going directly to the console. Hopefully this means free stuff for gamers such as the ever improving PSN, but if not done tastefully this can lead to a barrage of advertisements at every game loading screen or real products as power ups in upcoming blockbuster titles.
Sony reps are already spinning this news to benefit gamers by saying it will add realism to games, but the reality is Sony will receive a huge sum of money to include products dynamically in their games. As amusing as the Commercial for Nano’s in Metal Gear Solid 4 was, it’s cringe-inducing to think that Doritos™ could do something similar in Killzone 2. Imagine if Drebin was sharing a can of Coca-Cola with his small monkey friend and included a slogan and product placement in the middle of a cutscene. Damn.
Activision is in on the deal as well.
